BPS is developing an Off-road Cycling Master Plan to help meet community recreation needs and to provide Portlanders more opportunities to be active and experience nature in the city.
The project is working to create a plan for future off-road riding facilities, such as trails, skill parks and pump tracks, for children, adults and families of varying skill levels. It will make recommendations for the development and management of trails and facilities based on community needs and input.
An assessment of community needs for off-road cycling facilities is the next step in the process and will be the basis for planning a City-wide system of off-road cycling opportunities.
The project needs your input to help identify the types of off-road cycling trails and facilities that make sense for Portland. This summer, BPS is providing a variety of ways for Portland residents to get involved and share their ideas and feedback.
An online questionnaire will help gather information about off-road cycling needs and priorities.
Staff will offer the questionnaire and conversation at Sunday Parkways and other events around the city, and will be reaching out to underrepresented communities to learn from people whose voices are sometimes not heard in public planning processes.
Residents can also send the project team an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or general comments.
And explore the new Off-road Cycling Master Plan interactive map where you'll find an inventory of existing places to ride off-road in Portland.
